The display type of VIO input probes can be set by right-clicking a VIO input probe in the VIO Probes window of the VIO Dashboard window and selecting:

  • Text to display the input as a text field. This is the only display type for VIO input probe vectors (more than one bit wide).
  • LED to display the input as a graphical representation of a light-emitting diode (LED). This display type is only applicable to VIO input probe scalars and individual elements of VIO input probe vectors. You can set the high and low values to one of four colors:
    • Gray (off)
    • Red
    • Green
    • Blue

    When the display type of the VIO input probe is set to Text, you can change the radix by right-clicking a VIO input probe in the VIO Probes window of the VIO Dashboard window and selecting:

  • Radix > Binary to change the radix to binary.
  • Radix > Octal to change the radix to octal.
  • Radix > Hex to change the radix to hexadecimal.
  • Radix > Unsigned to change the radix to unsigned decimal.
  • Radix > Signed to change the radix to signed decimal.

You can also set the radix of the VIO input probe using a Tcl command. For instance, to change the radix of a VIO input probe called "BUTTON_IBUF", run the following Tcl command:

set_property INPUT_VALUE_RADIX HEX [get_hw_probes BUTTON_IBUF]
